obama had to say about spending and taxes last night on cbs news before the super bowl. >> there is no doubt we need additional revenue. coupled with smart spending reductions in order to bring down our deficit. and we can do it in a gradual way. >> so what does smart spending cuts mean? judd gregg is co-chair of the fix the debt campaign. robert reich is from the university of california at berkeley and author of "beyond outrage." both are cnbc contributors and we thank you for joining us. good to see you both. senator gregg, what's a smart spending cut? what's that mean? >> i don't know. i think it's a washington speak word for probably no cuts. >> no cuts? >> that's the tradition in washington. they say if it's not a good cut, don't make the cut. the fact is there's going to have to be decisions made here. taxes were raised at the end of the year. and we know we can't get to the fiscal responsibility we need without our entitlement accounts. they'll vo to step up. >> do you think we will actually see spending cuts on the entitlements? >> what i think is going to happ

in the next few months we have a lot of head winds. as i mentioned the sequestration, the tax debates that are coming to the forefront so with volatility at historic lows, why not give it a try in terms of putting on cost protection as we've seen clients do because the fact is it is all time lows for the bang for the buck, risk for reward that you have. >> what else can you tell us about the snake, the year of the snake that may play into this argument? >> as far as i know it's a black water snake so it moves a lot so hopefully that means more volatility for us in the future. that's about as much as i can get as an astrologist. >> in terms of chinese new years other years, away from the snake, i mean, did they have any impact on the markets in the past? >> no. >> it's just a conflins of negative things. >> last year was the year of the dragon but obviously we've seen a lot of volatility in years like that. 2008, for example. look, the fact that we have this astrological sign but more importantly we have this lineup in options land with the vix and with the implied volatility levels. >

washington, a grand bergan encompassing deficit reduction with tax reform, entime reform and deschristianry spending reforms in areas like debt. extension of the debt ceiling for two years. clarification on europe. first, the recession needs to stabilize, but beyond that, policy initiatives clearly indicate a road to political and fiscal and banking reforms and an indication that europe is serious about improving competitiveness. resumption of growth in emerging economies, like china, and finally the federal successfully engineering a modest increase in interest rates without unleashing runaway inflation. maria, these are tall orders, i know, but resolution of all these issues would be a huge boost to business confidence, capital expenditures and hiring would increase dramatically and revenues would rise, and that's what we need, maria. back to you. >> that's some list, bob. >> pretty ambitious. >> we'll be watching that. not everybody is buying into this bull market theory, by the way. pimco's bill gross is actually warning investors to be afraid, and i mean very afraid, of how inflation a

. get a little pullback and ought to buy that. looking at the biggest tax hike we've seen since 1937 and gasoline prices at the highest level this time of year ever. we've got a lot of issues and everybody on this program keeps saying that spain is getting better. it is not getting better. every -- every metric you can look at in spain is getting worse, whether it's unemployment, whether it's retail sales, whether it's gdp, so this year we're going to see disruptions and a lot of volatility. i am bullish, but market is way too complacent, and we could see bigger air pockets than we're expecting. >> i couldn't agree more with that. i think the headline risk is going to come back into the market, and that is what's going -- that's the biggest danger to this rally which is definitely tone. >> so what do you think -- >> maria, the other thing, you could -- and the other thing missing is growth. can you talk about apple transitioning from a growth story to a value story, and that's all fine and good. most of the arguments for stocks right now are about valuations, book values, dividends,

they need to do in terms of our fiscal solution, cleaning out the tax code, immigration reform. maybe we'll have some progress on that, so they kind of feel like they are the only game in up to, but at some point i think the risks are much more substantial than any potential benefit. we passed that point a long time ago. this was certainly justified in 2008 and 2009. but since then, you know, it is, it's pushing on a string, and ironically i've been saying this and john taylor had a real good op-ed in the "wall street journal" last week. if you want more lending, you know, banks can't get enough of a return on making a loan these days given the other risks that are involved, and if you look at community banks that -- that's their model. they take deposits and make loans. they are being killed. some will take their cheap money and put it in securities or do refis or investment banking. they are doing okay in this environment, but those whose bread and butter are making lending are getting hurt by this. this is hurting lending. it's not helping. >> sheila, always nice to have you on the pr
